Course description

In these videos are presented and applied in an easy way and through a gradual progression of practical exercises, the theories and the fundamental principles taught in the classics of Tai Chi Chuan. It is important that the mind and body are in harmony to be able to generate, unify and express the energy in the movement and in these practical lessons are shown different methodologies that are based on the same theoretical principles and tend to achieve the same goal. This can then be applied in any situation, in the practice of the forms or single movements, with or without weapons, as well as in the practice in pairs. It's very beautiful to see how in the traditional Chen and Yang style is shown this path, enriched by the research and the precious heritage left by the previous generations of Masters who have dedicated to study, practice and teaching their lives.

IdeaA major international event took place in Sicily, from 17th to 19th June 2016. Master Yang Jun (5th lineage holder of Yang style) and Master Gianfranco Pace (ITKA) partecipated in an open meeting at the ITKA seat in Massannunziata (Catania, Sicily) and hold classes on the principles of Taijiquan (solo work and work in pairs ~ demonstrations ~ speech and debates with the participants). This meeting of Master Yang Jun, top representative of Yang style, and Master Gianfranco Pace, leader of ITKA Chen style, is very significant for Taijiquan. It represents a chance to exchange and share experiences and interpretations with two major exponents of their styles, and to participate in a notable meeting of the Eastern and Western cultures, thanks to the art of Taijiquan.

Yang Jun

Yang Jun - Born in 1968 in Taiyuan, Master Yang Jun is the 6th Generation descendant of the creator of Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan. Son of Yang Dao Fang and grandson of Master Yang Zhen Duo, Yang Jun is the future bearer of the Yang Family heritage. Master Yang Jun began his training with Master Yang Zhen Duo when he was only 5 years old. He is proficient in Tai Chi Chuan, Sword, Saber, Push Hands, and many other forms of Tai Chi. Beginning in 1982 when they went to Singapore, Master Yang Zhen Duo has taken Yang Jun with him whenever he traveled abroad to teach. Now, after nearly twenty years and dozens of seminars around the world, Yang Jun has become a teacher in his own right. His skill is unquestioned. His forms seamlessly combine softness with hardness, finesse with flair, and restraint with expression. Since 1995, Yang Jun has served as the Vice President of Operations and Training of the Shanxi Province Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan Association with over 30,000 members in his hometown province of Shanxi. In October 1998 Yang Jun created the International Association and has served as President since. In August of 1999 Yang Jun moved to Seattle with his wife Fang Hong to formally begin working for the International Association and to establish a school in Seattle. Yang Jun represents the first member of the Yang Family to live outside of China. Master Yang Jun graduated from Shanxi University in 1989 with a degree in physical education. In 1995 the Chinese WuShu Academy recognized him as a famous WuShu master in Shanxi Province. In 1996 he was certified as the highest level national judge and served as the head judge at the 1998 National Tai Chi Chuan Competition in China.



Gianfranco PaceMaster Gianfranco Pace begins practicing Chen style just after adolescence, under the guidance of master Shi Ronghua. From that moment on, he will research continuously, having encounters with the best living masters of Chen style Taijiquan (and not only) in Europe and China. He stays over a month in Chengdu, where he privately studies the internal Kung Fu of Sun Lutang with master Gou Hong Hai. Returning to Italy he invites master Gou for some time to complete the technical programs started in China. Simoultaneously, carries on reserching on Chen style, in fact, thanks to master Chen Xiaowang (19th generation of Chen family), he has the possibility of studying  and living in Chen village (Chenjiagou, China), at master Chen Xiaoxin´s house (Chen Xiaowang´s brother).

From 2001 master Pace is invited to several foreing schools (in the United States, Dominican Republic, and several european cities), both of Chen style Taijiquan and other martial arts styles to spread his own understanding of the art. Nationally, master Pace has cooperated with FIWuK (Wushu Kung Fu Italian Federation) for which in 1999 compiles the regulations of Tui Shou competitions.

From December 2002 and for several years he has collaborated with FIWS (Wushu Sanda Italian Federation) as supervisor of the internal styles.

In 2009 the association I.T.K.A (International Taiji Quan Kung Fu Association) was born, with master Pace as the Technical Director. Throughout the years, thanks to master´s qualities and study methods, the International Taiji Quan Kung Fu Association has become an important reality: there are around 40 schools studying the technical programs all over Italy and abroad. Today I.T.K.A. is acknowledged as an association of seriuos researchers and students of Taijiquan, taking care of every aspect of the art: martial, energetic/salutary and philosophical. Beyond the constant growth there are other elements that identify master Pace and his repercussion in the school, first amongst them concreteness. The explanations, with all the theory at the base, are always demonstrated practically, and is this what is considered by many “master Pace´s strength”.
